Losing a loved one can have a devastating effect. For some, life just doesn't look the same after loss. Depression sinks in. Some even wish to join the departed loved one...There is a better way to live! The sun can shine again in your life without compromising the loving memories. I offer therapy for people experiencing grief and loss and helping in the journey for healing.

Grief and Loss are some of the most real and difficult emotions and feelings to deal with and to cope and live with. Loss of a beloved family relationship, dear friend, mentor, as well as a beloved pet can cause a shock and vast loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome. Grief and loss therapy is very important to me and has been a major part of my decades of counseling. Grief and loss therapy is not a band aid to the pain. It is a process for working to create closure and a continued internal relationship which can still sustain life after loss. When relationships are important, grief and loss are a process of dealing with the depths of love and attachment which are key to being human.

Although grief is an inevitable experience in life, coping with loss can be immobilizing. Because each individual is unique, finding the support you need to move through to a place of peace and acceptance is vital. I work with clients to help them process the pain of loss by addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues that may be keeping them from resolving their pain and moving forward to a place of healing and acceptance. We work together to build a structure that both motivates and enables the healing process to begin and ultimately gives them the opportunity to overcome and triumph over grief.

I have years of experience dealing with grief and loss. I have counseled and supported many clients through the agonizing loss of a loved one through death or from divorce. I have treated other forms of loss and grief, such as loss of a pet, loss of a job, loss of your health. I go through the DABDA model and really try to have the client guide the direction of the radical acceptance of the loss and from this externalizing and validation, return to a balance.

When you lose something or someone important or close to you, it may be difficult to make sense of life or to feel that others can relate to or understand what you are going through. If you need someone to talk to about what happened, I am here for you. I understand that sadness is sometimes something that shouldn't be fixed, but embraced. I will come alongside you, listen to you, and support you in the journey of making sense of what has happened to you. Grief and Loss is a painful time of life, but its one that every human being goes through. You are not alone. One strategy I use to help my Grief/Loss clients is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) where I help you explore unhelpful thoughts

Even though every one experiences loss, from the very young and up, each person will experience it differently. As I have found working with individuals and their families who are in the final stage of life, or have lost someone special each loss brings up issues from past losses which can complicate the healing process in grieving. I provide the tools to be able to work with the associated feelings and thoughts rather than isolating the sadness and other negative feelings and thoughts from unresolved issues or overwhelming pain. In my sessions, effective tools allow people to build strength, move forward with life, and express positive memories with less pain and more fulfilling comfort.
